HOLLYWOOD, July 31 (UPI) -- Universal Pictures struck a two-year producing deal with Hollywood actor Vince Vaughn and his production company, calling initially for three feature films.

Vaughn has in development "Male Doula," a high-concept comedy based on his idea, which will be scripted by Dana Fox, Variety reported Tuesday. The deal allows Wild West Picture Show Productions to acquire pitches and spec scripts, as well as provide Vaughn a discretionary fund.

Vaughn is joining with "The Break-Up" producer Scott Stuber on two other projects. One is an untitled comedy Jon Favreau is writing about couples attending a retreat to reinvigorate their marriages. The other is "Realtors," a satire about the chase for commissions by rival real estate agents.

The actor made his mark as a producer with Universal on "The Break-Up," a comedy conceived by Vaughn that grossed $205 million worldwide.
